My CHI buddy, Matt Weldon, has been ultra-secretive about his fall project, offering only cryptic Facebook and Twitter status messages about his work and job status. Monday, Matt tweeted a link to BoomShuffle, a web-based music streaming service that is likely the reason for the hush-hushedness.
When things get a bit too stressful, I like to listen to Bob Schneider. Not just New Bob with his fancy web site and eclectic philosophical songs. I also love the raunchier parental-advisory party-band songs from his (continuing) stints with Ugly Americans and The Scabs. I’ve come to think of him as the cool big brother I never had. I just wish he would visit more.
